KXCI Board of Director Committees
The KXCI Board of Directors is consciously migrating toward a model where the work of the Board is more and more done by designated board committees. The official Board meeting will continue to be the place where official Board actions are taken when appropriate, but the planning and preparation will typically be done in committee sessions. These committees, with the exception of Finance and Personnel, are open to participation by non-Board members. Committee membership must be approved by the Board, but the Board is especially interested in significantly expanding membership to include the whole KXCI community.
Below are the committees, including the meeting schedule, membership, and contact information for the committee chairs.
